Los Angeles Special Education Advocate
Special Education Practice Areas
If you are the parent of a special needs child, then you may greatly benefit from assistance when pursuing special education for your disabled child. You may have many concerns regarding your child’s educational future, but it is important that you have a skilled representative on your side as many of your concerns could be unwarranted and you may be unaware of other needs or options. At Student Rights Advocates, we are dedicated to providing excellent representation and we can assist you with any of the following:
Individual Education Program
An individual education program (IEP) is a legally binding document that comprehensively describes what special education services your child will receive and why they will receive them. In order to obtain this IEP, there will be a meeting during which these various issues will be discussed.
Feel free to contact us with any
questions or comments.
A 504 plan specifically describes modifications that will be made into an educational program or school in order to accommodate your child’s disability so that they may learn at the same level as their peers. It is important that you have skilled representation that can work with you to pursue the outcome that you need.
Due Process Hearings
If your child was placed in a normal education classroom but then the school tried to move them to a special day class, you have the right to due process and a due process hearing. Seek representation to pursue the best possible outcome.
Transitioning from high school to college or young adulthood for a disabled child can be an extremely difficult time. It is important that your family and child’s educators have planned for upcoming changes in the student’s life and that your child has the necessary support and understanding to move forward successfully.
